From 4th December 2023, COVID-19 LFD results will no longer be reported through the internet portal, but using the same method as requesting Pathology tests in Review.
To report a patient result, simply go into requesting in Review, select your patient as you would for all other requesting and request the “COVID-19 LFD patient reporting (Lateral Flow)” option. You will be asked similar questions to the existing method for reporting, as seen here.
Please then send the form to Pathology; NO SAMPLE IS REQUIRED ALONGSIDE THE REQUEST FORM.
Every LFD performed should have its result entered electronically as outlined – both positive and negative results must be reported. This will improve the ability of the IPC team to monitor current burden of COVID-19 in the hospital.
